New Products from RBTS
Zero Clearance Unions
RBTS has developed several zero clearance unions (Patents 6682102B1 & 6913291B1) for the encasement hose. Zero clearance unions allows connection of the primary hoses prior to connection of the secondary hoses. This provides capabilities for unlimited transfer line lengths. Zero clearance unions are also used to connect HIHTLs to equipment where there is no access to primary connections in containment (Patent Pending).

Power/Instrumentation Feed Through
RBTS has developed a fitting to allow penetration of the secondary encasement for power and/or instrumentation (Patent Pending). This fitting can be used on long multi-section transfer lines when the primary hose must be heat traced or when intermediate leak detection is required.
HIHTL Concrete Shielding
RBTS can provide custom built concrete structures to provide radiation shielding and/or protection from vehicles/equipment.
